and now we are in:
That may sound like a lot of driving, but we've actually only gone around 1,000 miles! Since it is so late in the month for us to be coming down to Arizona, we are not touring, but just driving, stopping for the night, and leaving the next morning.
That means I had to just wave at this sign:
and hope that maybe we can stop there another time. This is the exit for the Madison County Bridges, made famous in the movie with Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood.
I am enjoying our ride down as far as the scenery goes.......the fall colors have been spectacular. There's the advantage for driving down later in the month! See for yourself.
|I like how this vibrant red tree is standing right near a totally barren one!|
We saw some interesting and/or funny things on the road:
|Don't know what "Bob's" was, but it was awful inviting!|
Let's zoom in on the extra large cab, shall we?
|Notice the words "Smith&Wesson" in large letters?|
|I sure hope the employees don't wear bib overalls!|
This guy stands about three stories high, just look how he dwarfs the big trucks in the parking lot! I think "Terrible's Casino" is a Terrible name! I wonder if anybody ever wins any money?
I found these telephone poles to be a little mesmerizing....I don't know if they were in the process of replacing them with the straight poles or what.
Out of the five campgrounds we've stayed at so far, two were really nice, three were, meh. The next two photos were taken at one of the nicer campgrounds.
And finally, we KNEW we were getting into the southwest when we saw one of these roll across the road:
Have a great rest of the weekend.
